Nice video Dave, :D one of my favourite canyons and the first trip down is always the best. The dodgy bollard anchor was interesting the first time (and I've seen much worse since). When we first did it we went left instead of right trying to find a more direct route out, and there is one, up a pagoda slot, although it was a dodgy climb (for me). We went back to put a fixed rope in place, it's probably still there and will still be useable.

I love this little canyon. And it's so easy to tack on to a trip through Tigersnake!
I will point out though, the name is wrong. Dave Noble corrected me on this one. This canyon was called Crooked Crevice when first descended. There's another slot nearby that's the real Penrose Gully. I haven't explored it, but apparently it's not as good as this one.

It's confusing as Penrose creek is the orginal name of Tunnel creek. Penrose Gorge is Bells Grotto which is also reffered to as Penrose Gully in some railway related literature.... The Penrose gully/slot T2 reffers to is an interesting walk down slot. Interesting but not something you'd rush back to too often. There are also some interesting slots/ mirco canyons and passes to the north of Crooked Crevice.

Wow, so the situation is even more complicated than I realised.
